Twice as Nice in Texas for Busch

March 30 2019 Kyle Busch Capture victory Xfinity Seires at Texas Motor SpeedwayTwice as Nice in Texas for Busch
Kyle Busch held off a hungry field on a late-race restart to capture his third NASCAR Xfinity Series (NXS) victory in 2019 on Saturday afternoon at Texas Motor Speedway.

The Joe Gibbs Racing veteran took the lead on a green-flag restart with less than 10 laps to go, holding off Tyler Reddick and Toyota teammate Christopher Bell for his 95th career NXS victory, leading 33 laps on the way to victory lane in his Supra.

Fuel proved to be Busch’s friend on the final pit stop of the day, “Not taking any tires was certainly a help,” said Busch. “We jumped the field there and I was worried about the restart. I just didn’t think there was going to be enough grip. This car certainly had enough grip in it. I can’t thank iK9, the First Foundation – this Toyota Supra was awesome today. It was really fast.”

Team Toyota teammate Bell showed speed all day long to bring home a third-place finish after starting from the pole position and leading a race-high 127 laps (of 200). Jeffrey Earnhardt finished eighth and Brandon Jones showed strength by starting second, and ran inside the top-five throughout the day ,but finished 33rd after being caught in an accident late in the race. 
 
Bell was the class of the field throughout the day, and while frustrated with his third-place finish he looked at the bigger picture with the Xfinity Series ‘Dash-4-Cash' coming at Bristol Motor Speedway, “A very disappointing day, but we’re in the ‘Dash-4-Cash', so that’s pretty cool,” said Bell. “My goal was to make sure that we were in the top-four Xfinity guys.

Very frustrating to lose one like that, but really proud of this team. This Rudd Supra was extremely fast and the class of the field.”

The NASCAR Xfinity Series heads to the Last Great Colosseum – Bristol Motor Speedway -- for the first of four ‘Dash-4-Cash' races on Saturday, April 6.
